What the school says...
Sutton Valence School was founded in 1576 to educate the sons of Clothworkers and those of the local farming community.

There is an over-arching ethos of a total curriculum enabling educational experiences both inside the classroom and out, with the desire at its core to nurture and engage the individual to help in realising and exceeding every child's potential.

Communication between this department and mainstream teaching is good, and it is happily accepted that children sometimes develop an especial confidence in Special Needs Staff. Nov 09
